Why is Wikipedia not going after the Wikiless instances ?

I don’t want to think badly, but everything seems to indicate that wikimedia (the people behind wikipedia) has nothing to do with this: it doesn’t make sense, the content of wikipedia is under CC-BY-SA and its source code is GPL v2, supposedly it could be for the logo and name (they are registered trademarks of the foundation) but even so, use an entire legal department to accuse a single person, which does not violate the licenses described above nor is it a commercial project or illicit enrichment; dude, it’s just a frontend, not even a full mediawiki fork.

@dessalines@lemmy.ml some times commented on certain practices of the Codeberg staff that went against the status of being a non-profit organization: one of those practices was to ban FOSS projects without apparent explanation that are related to certain areas such as blockchain, torrent, p2p, etc. although these do not violate their code of conduct or are illegal.

I chose Codeberg as my main forge instead of Github and Gitlab (this was the one I used the most) precisely because of their status, in a strict sense they are not “a company” like these two, which theoretically gives you more freedom and more control over your projects.

But seeing this, I’m thinking whether to continue with them or go back to Gitlab or another alternative.

What certainty do I have that they won’t ban my projects (personal/professional) with all the work that this entails from one day to the next simply because they don’t like them or because of my ideological/political positions?


Thanks, I didn’t see well on my phone.


What is your question?



The goals:

  • a place where a more general public can be reached.
  • to be able to make official communities. this has been very difficult to do in most instances (from personal experience), since many projects/people have policies that do not allow official communities in highly politicized instances.
  • to be the entry site for the lemmyverse; facilitating the transition of novice users to subscribe to the communities of other distances according to their interests, leaving the political issues to those instances.
  • focusing more on the user experience than on technical issues.
  • generating a brand/identity of its own.

what does it mean community of communities?

Basically it’s a parody/joke about the Metaverse.

Jeremmy: Lemmy Instance
The community of communities. Jeremmy is a general purpose (without political related/explicit communities).

Por razones históricas Reddit (la plataforma en que se inspira y es alternativa Lemmy) ha estado enfocada al publico de habla inglesa al estar muy ligada a temas muy técnicos y de la cultura Geek/Nerd mayoritaria en estos países.

  • En la instancia de referencia (la mas grande) lemmy.ml hay mucho usuario hispano hablante.
  • La que menciona @nutomic@lemmy.ml que anteriormente era NoGAFAM.
  • Jeremmy.ml la administramos un mexicano (yo) y un chaval español @Echedenyan@lemmy.ml. No se si eso también cuenta jejeje.












I can. But I don’t understand why? It’s the page(window) title.






Thank you very much, the post was very clarifying for me, especially about the SPC status. In the law of my country there is no similar legal status, that was confusing me a lot, since the closest thing we have is a CS cooperative society status.

But apparently from what their (ex) clients/users comment and from certain contradictory information, they use the SPC status for the purposes of a Ponzi scheme.



Do you guys think this startup is some kind of unicorn/scam? Until now I have only used its operating system on one of my laptops, which is by far the one that offers the best user experience by default among all the 100% free distros, but the truth is that I have not paid attention to the company’s actions.
